Procurement & Purchasing man who use Gantt charts can be said to be nice buyers who have a good feeling of using IT tools. In fact, have you ever felt the gives up when it comes to managing with Excel?

How to use NEWJI recommended Gantt chart!

We introduced some Gantt chart creation tools, but We will share how to use Gantt chart that NEWJI usually uses, how to actually use it.

Management of projects with fixed deadlines

Most projects have a fixed deadline. Delayed delivery times and poor quality control can lead to huge losses. In order to carry out the project on time and with sufficient quality control, it is necessary to plan the project. Use the Gantt chart in such cases. In addition, by starting and executing the project plan, we can feel the following advantages.

(1) Validity can be confirmed at the planning stage

First of all, the schedule, personnel, work man-hours, and order are assigned on the Gantt chart. We recommend that you first create the outline of the plan itself. By doing so, it has become possible to verify whether the man-hours for each person in charge are appropriate, whether the work process sequence is optimized, and whether it is on time for delivery.

(2) Members can share work processes and schedules at the start

It is possible to visualize the man-hours / schedule for each work process and the person in charge on the Gantt chart. By using the visualized information, the manager can easily inform the members of the information and can give the best next instruction.

(3) Used for project progress management and visualization of progress after start

The Gantt chart is useful at the planning stage and at the start, but of course it can also be used for daily project progress management. This will also help address the first change.

Each task can be checked on the process chart of the Gantt chart, making it easier to understand the gap between the plan and the current situation based on the visualized progress status.

In this way, NEWJI also makes it easy to check the progress and plans of each project, and visualize and organize the schedule by using the Gantt chart. This Gantt chart is NEWJI’s default fanction.

A tool that allows you to check back and check the management status in chronological order at a glance even when all projects are completed!

That is the Gantt chart! Last but not least, it’s the Gun Chart that people often mistake! Correctly, it’s a Gantt chart!
